Does anyone know what tractor this grill is from? It's 13 inches in height, and cast iron. As you can see , I turned it into something else.. but I would still love to know what it was from . AiR3r6Yq8lLt.b62rKadgg.jpg

Welcome to the forum.

 

I think the 2nd look would be great on a garden tractor.

I don't know if i have a good one or not. There is one in the background of this picture but its hard to see. These were late 30's with the single T handle bar.

Yup, 1930s wards hoe trac or something like that. I own one and bought a grill with two broken bars since mine was missing the grill when i bought it. Any interest in parting with that nicer grill?

Looks like a Cylon from the original Battlestar Gallactica.

Yes, I was thinking Cylon when I made it. Most people think it's a piece of body armor, or something from Iron Man. Oddly enough, I just purchased another one on Ebay, 3 days ago. The owner didn't know what it was either, and I only paid $40 for it. I thought it was a great deal.    http://www.ebay.com/...=STRK:MEBIDX:IT

 

Sorry Squeeky Wheel, I think I'm going to make a matched set of these for my basement window. They look pretty cool with the light shining through them from behind. I'm sure if I found one on Ebay, there will be others.
